This is my second review for this Motel. Due to Tripadvisor restrictions, I had to have my first review deleted to update about my 3 month stay here.The reason I am writing it is because I have been here for three months and have seen a lot of what the Owners/Managers do to keep this place up. I am going to try to list all the improvements I personally have seen completed here.
When I first arrived, my first complaint was the slow internet. At that time it was at 0.25 Mbs. You could NOT watch Netflix, Hulu, or play online games. It was Horrible. But within the first two weeks of my stay, they had Macrotech out and upgraded their system to a full 1.0 Mbs connection! This is adequate for any standard online activity. Whether it be for watching Netflix/Hulu, Online Gaming (I have been playing WoW lately) or any standard Business needs. This was a much needed and welcome upgrade.
A week or so later, they had a paving company come in and re-surface (oiled) the parking lot and re-paint parking stripes.
Next thing I saw was that they removed the old patio area that was worn out grass and a couple small palm trees. It took about a week for a crew that was actually staying at this same motel to dig out all the old grass, relocate the palm trees and pour new concrete….. But they didn’t stop there. They actually gave the patio a patterned “rock slab” look and then stained the concrete, and sealed it. This is a VERY nice patio! I have watched guests use it every single day!
Next came in the carpet cleaners. They cleaned ever room over the period of about 3 days….
Then came some guys who pressure washed all the walkways….
Finally, last week they replaced the street water main… although I am unsure why they did this. Water pressure seems fine.
During my three month stay here, I have been in four different rooms. Each of these was very clean and well maintained. I had one issue where someone had removed a screw from the door latch, and one of the managers came and installed a new one immediately after I notified him.
While Every room has HBO, Room 210 has all the HBO channels. The rest only have HBO and HBO West. My stay has been wonderful, safe and exceedingly comfortable. If I could rate 4.5 stars I would. Since I have already rated this as 4 stars previously, I am going to rate it five stars this time.
One thing I REALLY like is that the owners care what “type” of clients they have stay here. You won’t find hookers, or any drug dealers here. The owners prefer working men and women like myself, families and “clean-cut” people. The quality here is not upscale, but the beds are wonderful none-the-less. You get four pillows on ever bed (five if it is a King bed).
My only complaint is that in my current room, 212, that the volume of this tv can only go to 18. I frequently have my door open to enjoy the fresh air, and this low volume setting (which can’t be changed) makes it difficult for a hearing impaired person like myself to hear the tv.
In Closing let me just say I “HIGHLY” recommend this motel. You WILL enjoy your stay, because the owners, Rick and Tina care very much.
